The Life is Strange Remastered Collection won’t be coming out this year. Following an update from the Life is Strange team, we found out that they’re delaying the release of the remastered collection. We thankfully won’t see any delays to Life is Strange: True Colors, the next game in the series starring Alex Chen. But unfortunately, Max, Chloe, and Rachel’s return to Arcadia Bay won’t happen until early 2022. The Life is Strange team cited concerns over the worldwide pandemic as the reasons behind the delay.
The remastered collection contains the original Life is Strange starring Max and Chloe, as well as the prequel, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, starring Chloe and Rachel. The improvements are set to include updated graphics, motion capture facial animations, updated and refined puzzles, enhanced lighting, and previously-released bonus content. You’ll be able to play both games in one full package, as the remastered collection leaves behind the episodic format from the original release.
Here’s the team’s statement in full:
Hello, Life is Strange fans!
After Life is Strange: True Colors releases on September 10, we’re happy to announce that the Life is Strange: Wavelengths DLC, starring Steph Gingrich, will release on September 30.
We will be revealing a first look via a new trailer tomorrow!
However, due to the ongoing challenges of the worldwide pandemic, we want to alleviate any additional pressure on the Life is Strange team by giving more time between the release of Life is Strange: True Colors and the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection.
For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection for all platforms – PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Stadia, and Switch – until Early 2022.
We hope you understand.
Thank you for your patience and overwhelming support!
